In depth guide for Inferno Ranged Barbarian

  • #141
    Quote from JCLe

    The idea behind it was to have a cheap build that could clear inferno before nerfs by abusing the ranged aspect of the game and thus being able to skip on defensive stats, which are quite expensive.

    ye, I finished well except diablo before 1.0.3 thanks to this build. I read about it here I do believe back then.
    Thanks for the help :)

    I ended up playing around with it, making the builds I posted. Did fit me more, tho I guess there exist a lot of different builds that is viable depending on playstyle and gear. Currently trying to find a decent way to make this build somehow as fast for farming as whirl is, as I can feel a nerf is on its way for some reason.

    The only viable build for fast farming in act 3 (req some gear) currently is with dual wield and charge as I posted earlier (in my current gear) not been playing so much around with this yet:

    I'm skipping ignore pain here because I got enough life back etc, and I'm able to move faster away from white trash etc and just farm packs if needed as I do with whirlwind build.


    Thanks for everything, and I'd love to see that video. I'm gonna make a small video again regarding how I do with this farming build for act 3.

    Edit: Made a video now, took one of the harder runs I had just to show that is it still possible, I tried to avoid using berserker but ended up dying because of it and failed some in general, but here it is:

    Hello my fellow ranged barbs ;)

    This guide helped me alot when i wanted to change build to something else after 200+ hours with tanking. I think its more fun to play as a range hero then the standard ww+tornado build nowadays, and iam killing stuff like never before :)

    This is a vid of me killing diablo with range spec ->
    Looking forward to open a can of woopass when the pvp patch comes :)

    cheers

    what do you guys think about the new the threehundrets spear?


    It's probably really good as an offhand weapon if you roll a socket for crit hit damage. There's testing to be done to see how the damage applies (maybe it's not better than a weapon with socket + crit hit damage, some of the new high dps legendaries can get that).

    But anyway I haven't seen all of them yet, I know some are just plain broken but I'm not sure about weapons. It does look really good and the movespeed will certainly help those with lower DPS. If it's not worth that much it's worth the pickup for beginners and possibly the best off hand weapon for the spec.

    Some of the new legendaries can get 1300 dps and those weapons might just outclass the spear even with the skill bonuses.

    I certainly don't have enough gold to buy some and check right now but if some1 has feedback or numbers it would help others..

    It seems like 5 pieces IK could be pretty good.. Although I don't really know I haven't been playing, all the legendaries are BiS now it feels like

    All I know is: -4 fury cost on belt, -5 fury cost on Stone of Jordan + IK set and you can throw forever, even if you had 0% crit. Which means you can instantly change Battle Rage: Into the Fray to Battle Rage: Marauder.

    I'm not playing Diablo 3 at all though, so that's just purely from reading patch notes.

    any1 tested The Three Hundredth Spear yet? i dont wanna buy it for millions if it sucks
  • #150
    I have one, but haven't "tested" it against my old OH, but it looks to have increased my dmg pretty good. If you're going to get one though, make sure to pick up one with at least 40% Weapon throw dmg and crit dmg/socket, and of course highest dps one you can afford.

    been trying new builds with my shiny, fresh barb since i got her to inferno. did the usual frenzy/revenge build to get to inferno, but needed something more. Thought i would try the WW build, but i didnt really like it. So, i read this 2 days ago and i have been tweaking my build to what i like. Have beaten butcher and belial while farming with her. My current setup works really well, i have 39.5%CHC and 280%CHD after skill bonuses. I do also farm with a different offhand around 850 dps, but use the current offhand for LOH on bosses. I got a lot of gear upgrades to do once i farm enough gold again, any gear recommendations will be taken into consideration. Here's my current build:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/heavymetal-1322/hero/24516238

    I added threatening shout because i can pop war cry with 60 fury rune, then pop TS with treasure dropping rune and i'm good to go. I got leap for the added armor/maneuverability if needed, and furious charge for maneuverablily also and for fury generation. Its a decent build for beginners/mid-level inferno gear and i'm sure it will be decent in act 3 once i get my gear up. I initially started with the skills on the OP's first post, but i was never using WotB so i replaced it. And i've never used Ancient spear, so i didnt adapt very well, but this build was pretty good. and i can always put WotB back in place of Furious Charge if needed.

    Prior to 1.04 I had been stuck farming Act 2. Had been looking out for an affordable -5 WT belt in order to give throwing a shot. Found one the night before 1.04 hit, so I bought it and gave the WT build a whirl. Really liked it, bought a Three Hundredth spear after 1.04 and made it up to Diablo, IN MY FARMING GEAR. Upgraded my MH yesterday and finally beat Diablo, in my farming gear... :) (I think that's kinda funny...)

    For farming/group play I like http://us.battle.net...PkRi!ZYf!ZZccYb but to take Diablo down I changed Ricochet to Mighty Throw and Into the Fray to Mauraders Rage.

    Thanks to all for the inspiration, my Barb feels like a totally different class now.
